Pulse Check

Yikes, ya’ll! It’s clearly time for a pulse check, because I have been ruthlessly neglecting Balanced Chaos. Life has been crazy busy.  Work has been insane, in the best possible way.

I was reading in 1 Peter last night and came across a passage I’ve read many times, but it struck me in a very different way.  This is what it reads: Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech. He must turn from […]

Guest Blogger: Josh Kirby

When I think about people who would make a great guest blogger, I think of the people in my life who exude empathy, sound knowledge and a compassionate heart for issues they may or may not even personally experience.  These people don’t always need to be an expert, because of the raw acceptance they breath out to others.

Faith. Courage. Change.

One of my good friends from Nashville, Brandi Thornhill, always gives me the best advice. We could talk for days, with every conversation leaving me with a sore jaw from laughing so hard.

How to Find the Right Workout Program

I love working out. Okay, that’s a lie. I just wanted to see how it felt if I typed that out with confidence. It felt wrong. Let’s start over. I love how I feel after I work out. It’s getting to the gym, and more than that, getting in the habit of working out, that’s always […]

How to Make a Vision Board

  Are vision boards truly something that will help your goals and dreams come to life? Yes. When I started working for Oxford, my boss, who is amazing, shared with me that he has been making vision boards for, not only his career, but for all his aspirations in life.

2016 – The Year I Learned the Most About Myself

Time to Get Real: 2016 in a Nutshell I didn’t know on January 1, 2016 that this would be the year I learned the most about myself. I didn’t realize it would be one I looked back and, at first glance, felt like I didn’t make any personal progress. I sat down yesterday and wrote down […]
